  1. Enjoying My Day Off

    by , 07-30-2014 at 05:44 AM (My Journey to Simple Living & Happily Frugal)
    Today is nice & sunny..
    I went to do grocery shopping, had a nice lunch (frugal price but tasting good) and also stopped by the Gadget store to check an android phone with auto focus camera but it's out of stock.
    I also stopped by at a Chinese stall to buy steamed dumplings (dimsum) & yogurt at a small dairy shop.
    Now I'm home relaxing, thinking about cleaning my room & organizing the drawers.

    We signed the dotted line for the kitchen cabinets and countertop. Total cost will be about $9000, half of which we already put down in a deposit. We also bought a dishwasher and range hood, for $1100. Now all we need to do is buy the backsplash tile and decide on the flooring. August will be an expensive month!

    On top of that we received a dental treatment plan for myself for $6500!!! I about fainted. Insurance will only cover $2500. I am looking for a second opinion from ...

  4. A New Day

    I realize that I can't just stop working at my part-time job but I can drop down to one 4 hour shift which is on Sunday evenings. I can live with that and feel such a relief as I have been so burnt out!

    Today I am taking over in the kitchen with the meal cooking, I haven't really done this in a long time as my fiancees boys are kind of picky. I will not ask them what they would like to eat as their dad does , I find that they can't agree, especially the 12 year old. Take it or ...

    My Blog is Titled "Living a Simple Life" however, it seems like for the past couple of years my life has been more Hectic than anything. I have accumulated more debtand I seem to have lost myself when it comes to the Simple and Frugal life I have always embraced in the past. I have been playing around with some ideas over the past couple of days to try and get back on track as far as the credit cards Go and that is to start snowballing. I'll start paying down the smallest amount owed ...
